Hippo in the House

This post’s headline might be funny in theory but it's dreadful in reality. Major flooding in parts of Nigeria has wreaked havoc for hundreds of thousands of people, especially for those whose shanty housing is submerged in water. Overrun rivers pushed snakes, crocodiles and hippopotamuses into homes. One man, whose dwelling now hosts a hippo, told a BBC reporter, “I hope that when it is tired, it may leave my home.”

We thank God that the Faith Alive hospital in Jos, Nigeria is high and dry. Many of its patients, however, are not so fortunate. Please pray for their survival and return to dry homes with only the animals of their choosing.
